got us stops and big turnover at the en. we had a couple of big plays and good drives and got back in the game. it was fun. we had a fun night. it was a good win for us. >> michele: andre brown missed the first eight games with a broken leg and comes back. two touchdowns tonight. has what has he meant to your offense? >> the physical running game he has brought and positive yardage and keeping us in good down and sdans and picking up protection. he has done a great job. peyton hillis played well tonight also. we run the ball wen' have to keep doing that. >> michele: you're 5-. what do you think? you're still in this. >> we knew after last week's loss we have to win five in a row aand this is the first one. you can't win five in a row if you don't win the first one so we accomplished that and got to keep going. >> michele: congratulations. >> thanks. >> michele: justin, had you two and a half sacks on the season. tonight have you a career high four. what got into you? >> you know what, man?
coach always said just keep pounding the rock and what we have done. the numbers aren't there, but we rushed hard and tonight it came together for us. secondary did a great job of giving rg different reads and had to hold the ball longer than in previous games. i was able to capitalize on it. >> michele: the lack of pass rush is an issue for this defense. how do you build on a performance like tonight? like eli just said, mant we got to continue to play one game at a time. we dug youourselves in a good h here. you follow the giants we will always make it tough on ourselves. one game at a time and play together and great team effort and you got to win. >> michele: congratulations, justin. >> thank you, michele. >> al: michele, thanks. look at the playoff picture. new york is still very much on the outside on this situation even with that win although they do have technically a shot at it. seattle hosts new orleans
tomorrow night and could affect the standings down the line. both divisions figure to come down to the final sunday. carolina and san francisco won today to stay ahead in the wild card race and two of carolina's next three games are against new orleans so they have a good shot at the division that includes next sunday night here on nbc when the panthers play at the saints. now let's bring in tony dungy from new york. tony, which nfc team impressed you most today? a lot to choose from. >> there are, bob. i have to look at the san francisco 49ers. they were playing st. louis. st. louis had been hot and the 49er defense played well as they always do. i think the big thing was getting michael crabtree back. you look at how that opened up the offense. crabtree making plays on the outside. not only the speed and everything that he brings but now just making it a little bit easier for vernon davis and anquan boldin. i was really impressed with the 49ers today.
>> in the afc, if denver and new england each win out, they will own the top two seeds. indy is three games clear in the south and cincinnati two-game lead over baltimore. the race for the sixth seed figures to be tight with two teams at 6-6 and four at 5-7. so tony, although this may be an impossible question to answer, which team do you think is best positioned out of those half dozen fighting for that last playoff spot? >> i really like where the ravens are because they won on thanksgiving and when you have those extra three or four days off heading into december it really gives you a physical and emotional lift. also i like the fact that baltimore has been there before. they had a super bowl run last year. a lot of those veteran guys know what it takes so they have got a tough schedule coming up but i like where the ravens are sitting right now with that big win against pittsburgh. >> coach, thanks a lot. we will turn to mike florio of pro football talk. mike, what will you have your eye on tomorrow? >> bob, we will have our eye on the league office.
tomorrow morning the review will commence of that sideline incident from thanksgiving night involving steelers coach mike tomlin. he has said he lost his placement on that white stripe. actually had a foot in the field on a kickoff return by ravens receiver jacoby jones. i'm told all options are on the table from fine to suspension to on the possible loss of a draft pick although the expectation is there will simply be a significant fine imposed. either way a decision is expected by the middle of the week. speaking of decision. the packers and bears have decisions to make about their starting quarterback. aaron rodgers still recovering from a broken collar bone may or may not be back on sunday and mixed reviews on whether he is ready to return and face the falcons. for the bears jay cutler continues to recover from a high ankle sprain and may not be back on monday night as the bears take on the cowboys. both teams are in danger of sliding out of the playoff place altogether in the nfc. >> for all that and more don't

here. here is jeff trip lee putting up three fingers signaling third down. he looks around. mike shanahan in his press conference just said he had asked the head linesman the official nearest him for a measurement. the head linesman said he didn't need a measurement. they call a first down play and the way the game ended. >> cris: the bottom line jeff triple triplette saw the mistake. even though it impacts the game and no time-outs for washington and they couldn't stop it if he wanted to. he had to stop the game and make sure everybody understands it's third down not first down because the play caller has no chance in that situation. that is a major screw-up that really had a lot to do with the outcome of this game. >> al: one other note too. we didn't get it during the game. giants one penalty tonight for one yard. it was half the distance to the goal line so they had like 11 inches in penalties tonight.
in any event! next week it's carolina at new orleans. a game that before the season we didn't think we would be flexing into but here we are and this is going a beauty. >> cris: it is. because you get sort of the best against the best. you get carolina's defense led by luke kuechly and they do so many great things on the defensive side. going into that dome where we have seen everybody struggle to try to stop that offense with drew brees so it's going to be fantastic. >> al: eight in a row. 15 games in about four days but a lot of fun this thanksgiving week. hope had a great holiday. 24-17 is our final. next week, it's on to the superdome. the panthers and the saints on "sunday night football." until then, al michaels and cris collinsworth and michele tafoya. our endure true headed by fred and the guys in the truck. good night from landover, maryland. .
to a man in san francisco today after he tried to sell the device online. police say the robbery and shooting happened at about 3:30 this afternoon near the mission district. monty francis has an update for us. >> reporter: police say the robbery turned violent and deadly. the victim was found dead and near his suv. the man in his 20s was taken to the hospital where he was announced dead. police have not arrested a suspect or released a description of the suspect other than to say the shooter was male. the victim was selling a gaming console. he arranged to meet with a buyer online. the suspect stole the console and then shot and killed the

particularly receptive to folks who have been a part of those units. >> reporter: officials have been detaining him since late october. he was detained just as he was boarding a plane to leave. we'll here from experts about the possible political implications of his detention. thank you. vice president joe biden has a week long trip planned to asia this week, including a stop in south korea. there's no word at this point if he plans to discuss or meet with anyone regarding mr. newman. we're following the story on air and online. we have it at nbcbayarea.com.
